Bo Bice and Kevin Frye

This photo of Bo Bice and his good friend, Kevin Frye, right, was taken in 2010 at the Kiwanis Club of Franklin County’s MDA Day/Music by the Lake event which was also a fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Bo Bice, one of America’s most popular modern-day southern rock singers, will perform in concert Nov. 17 in Cowan.

Bice will perform an acoustic show. His epic run on American Idol as runner-up to Carrie Underwood in 2005 is still one of the most watched seasons in the show’s history.

And Bice is no stranger to Franklin County, having offered his talent and time to many charity events throughout the years.

The fundraiser will be held at 1 p.m. at the Cowan Center for The Arts located at 301 Montgomery St. in Cowan. Tickets are $30 with all proceeds going to help his close friend, Kevin Frye of Franklin County, with expenses involved in purchasing a larger wheelchair and ramp for his family’s van.

Frye has been a driving force for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and fundraising for many years in Franklin County. His efforts have raised thousands of dollars.

Light refreshments and a silent auction will also be offered at the fundraiser.
